Fits in a missile tube on a boomer... land attack submarine (or whatever the Navy calls them after they take out the Nukes). ;D

Not exactly. Fits in a box the same size as four missile tubes merged together. Naval architects are cringing at the thought of putting that big a hole in the pressure hull.

Best thing to do is not to bother with the hole - make it a module that connects to the pressure hull - of course this would be no good for a retrofit, but has been proposed for future submarines. Still not a trivial task, though.
